CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Charleston police raid a West Side bar after complaints from neighbors.

Police raided Park Place Bar Thursday night after receiving complaints about a fight there.

Charleston police say several people with outstanding warrants were arrested. Investigators also say they found evidence of illegal gambling inside the bar.

This raid comes less than 24 hours of two separate shootings on Charleston's west side.

Police say they're working to make sure the neighborhood is safe for everyone and they hope raids like this sends a clear message.

"We've got a couple complaints from the mayor's office about this particular establishment...again we're going to be consistent and we're not going to tolerate it," said Lt. Shawn Williams, Charleston Police.

The names of those arrested have not been released.
